the end of february makes me anxious for spring. and each year I am surprised at how hard it can be to transition my wardrobe without (a) freezing to death, (b) looking ridiculous, or (c) getting super depressed that I am still stuck in dark, drab woolens when it is 65 degrees by lunchtime. this year I am determined to build a bridge between my mostly winter and mostly summer wardrobes by grabbing a few pieces earmarked just for spring.
this look from zara is both stylish and a good bridge. being boxy, mock turtle, and cropped makes the jacket on trend for spring (the fall runways have more of the same, so I think it is a good bet it will work next spring as well). i suspect all of our jeans will be a bit more faded, loose, and shredded this spring compared to recent years. i also see caramel/camel as THE shoe color for spring. word.
